Benteler Coat of Arms

Shield off centred parted per pale wavy (approx. 4:1), at sinister Argent (with two wavy lines Sable in pale), at dexter Gules, couped per pale a forearm Or holding a Tau-cross with a bell, all Or.
Meaning:
The flag colours red and gold (yellow) had been the colours of the Bishopric of Münster (Benteler even today belongs to the diocese of Münster, while Langenberg belongs to Paderborn). The scene on the dexter side is alluding to St. Anthony, the local patron saint. Tau-cross and bell are among his attributes. Benteler since 1816 had been part of Liesborn-Wadersloh, it seceded in 1898 and since 1970 became part of Langenberg.
The arms wereapproved in 1966 by Minister of Interior of Northrhine-Westphalia.
